Sand Grain Slipover is a slipover with beautiful cables and a classic fit. The back piece is worked first. Then the stitches for the shoulders are picked up along the cast on edge and then joined in front to form the front piece. The front and back pieces are then joined together and worked in the round. Finally, ribbed edges are added to the piece.
